Get a piece of all-thread from a local nut & bolt supply store and cut to length. You can get metric or fractional, and standard or high strength. Tip--use self-locking nuts, but glue one on with red Loctite so it functions like a bolt head.

"Let each of use properly whatever strengths he has and strive to use them well. If he does this, he will never find himself lacking."
